Animals really are great companions. They even have your back in tough situations! This is highlighted in this amazing video where a 17 year-old female elephant named Thongsri comes to the rescue. She is very protective of her mahout (a person who works with, rides, and tends an elephant) and when she sees him in trouble, she cannot help but to step in. In this fake situation, her caretakers are pretending to fight to show how much Thongsri cares about her carers. Immediately, the 17-year-old elephant charges into battle to rescue her caretaker and shoo away any potential threats.
The elephant looked so concerned about her caretaker’s well-being that she circled him protectively to check if everything was alright. I don’t know about you, but Thongsri the elephant shows some truly endearing qualities that we could all learn from.

What a good elephant she is! Isn't this video just amazing? Seeing the bond and friendship that these two share is simply inspiring! Animals can really be amazing and are great companions if you treat them right! The way the elephant rushes to save her friend is really adorable and it is a moment that they will never forget, especially since elephants never forget! Because of this, they’re likely to come to the rescue of a friend in need. Never mess with those whom elephants love, no matter whether it is just a game or for real. Because elephants know perfectly how to defend friends with their life.

Are you familiar with the term “elephant mother"? It means that the mother believes that she needs to nurture, protect and encourage her children, because such are elephant females with their young, and, obviously, their handlers as well! This adorable elephant looks so cute! Don't you wish that you could bring something like that home with you? Unfortunately you can't but you could always get an adorable animal plush from Amazon!

In an elephant herd, some members may not be as strong or as healthy as others, but everyone is part of the family, without exception. Sick or injured elephants are surrounded by the others and encouraged to stand, for instance. Elephants use their trunks to massage the weak elephant's shoulders and head. They also use their trunks to prod sick elephants to their feet, and will attempt to use their bodies to support that of an injured or sick elephant. When traveling, healthy elephants often turn and look back at their slower herd mates, stopping and waiting for those elephants to catch up before continuing to move forward. Elephants are well known for their compassion and empathy towards others and just like humans they experience joy, grief, and a whole array of emotions. It is easy to guess how an elephant is feeling just by one short look at its face.

      I saw this very thing happen with my dog when I thought I was going to fall and I let out a squeal and she came running in from outside and skidded ti a stop beside me and checked me out. I didn't know she could do that or would.

      I imagine the elephant knew it would be severely punished had it not performed for the camera in this way.

        I imagine this could be sincere as well but not knowing for sure would mean we are both just 'assuming'
